In March, 2015, my motion to dismiss was granted in the Kimberlin v. National Bloggers Club, et al. (II) federal suit (aka the RICO Madness LOLsuit). However, one count in the case remained alive against Patrick Frey. (Kimberlin v. Frey, aka the RICO Remnant LOLsuit). Brett Kimberlin kept me involved in the case via a subpoena seeking evidence during discovery. The TKPOTD for seven years ago today dealt with my response to that subpoena.

I have received the following subpoena:
I have provided the following response:
The redactions of the privilege log and one email are for the benefit of third parties not connect to the LOLsuit.

Because the subpoena was improperly served on me, I could have blown it off. I chose to fully respond for two reasons. First, I had nothing that would help his case, and I enjoyed pointinh out one of the reasons I couldn’t give him everything he wished for was because his false reports of harassment to Twitter had limited my access. Second, I hoped that voluntarily responding would prevent any further involvement in the matter.
I was wrong on point two.
Because Kimberlin received copied of emails for other discovery which I had trashed as part of my routine account maintenance, he sought to have me sanctioned. Of course, I opposed his attempt, and the dueling motions kept me in the case until Kimberlin finally lost and his sanction motion became moot.
I know he was ordered to pay sanctions to you and others in other of his cases. Has he ever paid up or is he still a deadbeat?
As well as murderous coward.
